Hi Rocky. I too have gone the route of zero offensive statues but opted for ten ice instead. DrT is a fun challenge which I look forward to on each visit he makes. Crzm is all that I use since troop training is a pain without Instant Training.
Recently I’ve learned that I can actually continue vp pushing with ten ice. I get raided about once a week, just hit the destroy button for npcs and my map remains full with about 20 pvp. Of those pvp I cherry pick a few for easy victories and next the tougher bases to get a fresh crop to cycle through. With almost no raids it’s easy to get on the positive side and gain vp. Yet another way to vp push. 😊
